The Richard III  Society is an international group with an interest in medieval history with particular emphasis on the life and times of Richard III, the last Plantagenet  King of England.

The NZ Branch was formed in 1986 and has been based in Lower Hutt  meeting every two months since that time. An informal discussion group also meets in on the Kapiti coast in alternate months. Prospective new members are welcome.

2015 was a big year for the Society. Following intensive research by Ricardians, Philippa Langley and John Ashdown-Hill, Richard's remains were discovered beneath a car park in Leicester in 2012. Richard was re-interred in Leicester Cathedral on March 26th,2015. Ricardians from all over the world  flocked to Leicester to take part in a week long series of events to commemorate the re-interment.
